The Formula One Scene

The 1978 season was proving to be a jolly good one until about midway when it all started to go wrong. It had opened with a most interesting collection of variables that were going to prove or disprove themselves as the year went on. World Champion Niki Lauda had left Ferrari and joined the Alfa Romeo powered Brabham team under Bernie Ecclestone, Ferrari had forsaken Goodyear and was contracted...

The Spanish club sided with the constructors...

1981 British Grand Prix race report - A very popular win

John Watson crosses the line in his McLaren to win after late drama for Rene Arnoux. Photo: Motorsport Images The pits and...

The French Grand Prix

Inconclusive Dijon-Prenois, July 5th The most important aspect of the 1981 French Grand Prix was that it saw the return of the Goodyear Tyre Company to Formula One. It will be recalled that they withdrew entirely last winter during the fracas between Bernie Ecclestone and the Formula One constructors and officialdom. Thanks to the support of Michelin, who agreed to supply everyone with tyres...

Grote Prijs van Belgie

A bit of a shambles Zolder, May 17th The two days of practice before the Belgian Grand Prix were not only a waste of time, they were farcical. Partly because of rules and regulations and partly because of the weather, but at least it was not due to any fault of the drivers, who were all getting on with the job in spite of the difficulties. This year's "in-thing" is adjustable ride-height in order...

The San Marino Grand Prix

A very interesting race Imola, May 3rd To fill out the ranks of the Grand Prix races in the European part of the 1981 season the Italians came up with the splendid idea of holding a second event in Italy. As the International rules do not allow this unless the circuits are more than a specified distance apart (to allow two events in the USA) the Automobile Club of San Marino put in a claim for a...

Brazilian Grand Prix

Rio in the rain! Rio-de-Janeiro, March 29th For most Formula One teams, the 1981 Brazilian Grand Prix represented the second event on a three race schedule which would mean them operating away from their European bases for the best part of five weeks. The World Championship season got under way with the United States (West) Grand Prix through the streets of Long Beach, California, on March 15th...

Notes on the cars at Buenos Aires

Lotus: Gone are the sleek black and gold creations from Hethel, they are now green with yellow lining. Gone too is the fatuous title "John Player Special", they are now "Martini-Lotus" (though Motor Sport has never considered a Lotus anything other than a Lotus). The reason for these changes is the end of the financial support from the John Player tobacco firm, after a long and successful...
